Seismology is a highly effective tool for investigating the internal structure of the Earth. Similar techniques have also successfully been used to study other planetary bodies (planetary seismology), the Sun (helioseismology), and other stars (asteroseismology). Despite obvious differences between stars and planetary bodies, these disciplines share many similarities and together form a coherent field of scientific research. This unique book takes a transdisciplinary approach to seismology and seismic imaging, reviewing the most recent developments in these extraterrestrial contexts. With contributions from leading scientists, this timely volume systematically outlines the techniques used in observation, data processing, and modelling for asteroseismology, helioseismology, and planetary seismology, drawing comparisons with seismic methods used in geophysics. Important recent discoveries in each discipline are presented. With an emphasis on transcending the traditional boundaries of astronomy, solar, planetary and Earth sciences, this novel book is an invaluable resource and reference for undergraduates, postgraduates and academics.... 202, 329, 334, 371, 373 GOES satellites, 322 GOLF, 26a€“28, 30, 68, 170, 282, 291 GOLF-NG, 291 GONG, 5, 26, 28, 32, 63a€“68, 70, 170, ... 313 f-mode amplitude, 201 f-modes, 85, 134, 189, 200, 201, 359 F-star problem, 22 Fabrya€“ Perot, 16 Farside, 89, 141, 211, 216 fault, ... 121, 176, 177, 298 helium ionization, 5, 173, 281, 285 heliuma€“mass degeneracy, 285 Hermitian, 129 Hertzsprunga€“ Russell diagram, anbsp;...
